Let's get crafting!


Step 1: Create a Reverse Z-Fold Card Base.

From smooth white cardstock, cut pieces measuring 8 1/2” x 6”, 8” x 6” , 4 1/2” x 9” and 4 1/5” x 4 1/5”.

♥ Score at 1/2” on 8 1/2” x 6” card piece, score at 4” on 8” length on 8” x 6” card piece and score at 4 1/2” on 9” length of 4 1/2” x 9” card piece and crease them well.

♥ Fold 8” x 6” panel and glue it on the creased hinge of the 8 1/2” x 6” panel to form a Z fold card. Also, glue the folded 4 1/2” x 4 1/2” panel as shown.

Step 2: Choose the pattern paper from the designer paper collection and cut mats for all the panels.

Cut 1 piece of 7 3/4” x 5 3/4”.

♥ Cut 4 pieces of 3 3/4" x 5 3/4".

♥ Cut 3 pieces o 4 1/4 x 4 1/4".

Step 3: Assemble the reverse Z fold card and tuck in the small 4 1/2” by 4 1/2" note card from inside out. 

Step 4: Secure the magnets with the help of scotch tape on inside panels as shown.

Step 5: Mat all the panels.

Glue all the mats using tacky glue.

Cut one more mat 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" from the Luxe Gold cardstock for the front.

Step 6: Adhere the front panel using double side tape.

Step 7: Stamp and die cut the focal elements using Floral Basket Collection.

Stamp all the required images from Wicker Basket Cling Stamp Set and Basket Blooms Cling Stamp Set using Onyx Black Versafine ink. 

♥ Cut them all using their coordinating dies.

Step 8: Color images and assemble the painted basket.

           ♥ Color all the images using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers.

Once all the images are painted, adhere extra one or two layers to each die cut to add extra strength and dimension.

Step 9: Prepare the die cuts.

Cut 2 die cuts of white cardstock and one piece from Luxe Gold cardstock using HCD1-7398 French Courtyard Die. Stack and glue together all the die cuts keeping the gold one on bottom, creating a delicate shadow. Cut the die cut into two and keep aside. 

♥ Also, cut 2 whites and one gold Happy Birthday accent and glue them together keeping the gold on bottom. Creating delicate gold shadow.

♥ Cut 2 die cuts from white and one from Luxe Gold using the inner fancy oval frame using HCD2-7426 Oval Filigree Frame Die. Stack and glue them together keeping the gold one on top. Also. cut 2 die cuts from white cardstock using the inner most fancy oval die from the same die set. Glue them together.

♥ Cut one each die cut from white and Luxe Gold cardstock using HCD3-7434 Delicate Daisy Corner & Border Die and glue them together keeping the gold on the bottom. Also, cut its shadow from vellum cardstock and glue it on the bottom most.

Step 10: Decorating the card panels with die cuts.

The two cut pieces and the Happy Birthday element from HCD1-7398 French Courtyard Die are glued on the inside panel.

♥ The golden frame and the oval inner element from the HCD2-7426 Oval Filigree Frame Die, decorate the top panel.

♥ The die cut from HCD3-7434 Delicate Daisy Corner & Border Die creates the pocket to hold the gift card and tags inside the top panel. Die cut two csrds from the paper collection to fit into the pocket.

Step 11: Decorate the card front.

Adhere the wicker basket with the florals and the bow over the Oval Filigree Frame die cut on the card front using dimensional dots.

Stamp the sentiment from Celebrate Love Sentiments Cling Stamp Set on designer paper and cut using Ticket and Tags Die and adhere.
